Ganesh elephant god Sculpture Remover Obstacles wood carving Balinese art statue
Ganesha is one of the favorite deities of the Balinese also. You can tell by the loving detail that went into this wonderful joyful Ganesha.
He has been hand carved from a solid huge chunk of very high quality heavy and dense waru wood with beautiful light color wood grain. He has a happy joyful expression on his wise face, and a big round belly! He is sitting upon a lotus base, face hands and feet perfectly carved as only a Master Carver in Bali can achieve completely with simple hand tools. Richly embellished and polished to a deep satin smoothness, the color is left natural with hand waxed finish.
He is one of a kind, created by my good friend Pak Agung Arjana, who now is in his 70's and is a Master Carver. Agung has taken extra care with this unique work of Hindu art. Ganesha is shown sitting upon the lotus base, with his vehicle the mouse at his feet. Holding in each hand his trident, noose, his broken tusk and a sweetmeat.
You will receive the exact carving you see here. This is not a stock photo. All of my fine Hindu and Buddhist sculptures are one of a kind works of art that I choose by myself directly from the artist in Bali, many who I have had relationships with for 20 plus years now.
This wonderful work by Agung will be sure to grace you home or sacred space with his wise and peaceful presence. I am sure you will love and enjoy this amazing artwork of Bali as much as I do.
